I know that this project is currently in its alpha stage but I was wondering if that should keep me from using Spring rich-client for building a new point-of-sale application for a large retailer which needs to be installed by mid-2005.
I'm the development lead on this application and our first decision was whether to use Swing or SWT. Even though I had experience in SWT, I chose Swing because of its flexibility. I am now faced with the task of learning Swing, which I find somewhat complicated. I'm a big fan of IOC which is what attracted me to Spring RCP in the first place, and also its integration of other rich client applications. But after trying to learn Spring RCP I found some of the documentation lacking. I might also try a phase approach which I read about in these forums where I could use the IOC, image, and resource management functions of rcp.
Just curious on what thoughts you all might have. Thanks in advance.
